Seattle Seahawks Super Bowl Champs

The Seahawks with a powerful defense, the most complicated of the League, and the confusion that had the Broncos were always the better team on the pitch. In addition they also had complete control over the actions of quarterback Peyton Manning , who played out of control and at its worst game of the season , won their first Super Bowl.The result bulging nearly approach the historical record.The result came in the broader history of Super Bowl , the 1990 when the Broncos lost 10-55 against the San Francisco 49ers . 

Smith was supported by wide receiver Percy Harvin , who returned a kick 87 yards handoff to the end zone . While quarterback Russell Wilson threw two passes " touchdown " and the three represented the superiority in the Seahawks' offense , before the 82,529 attendees match at MetLife Stadium , East Rutherford ( New Jersey).

The  punishment for the Broncos , who saw their mark at 2-5 in Super Bowls,  started by running back, Knowshon Moreno of  Puerto Rican origin, which recovered a " fumble " in the end zone. 

At the beginning of the first quarter, he gave the first two points to the Seahawks, to open the way to attack the Broncos who could never understand Seattle nor control.

It had been just two seconds of the match when the action  marked the course of the most important sports event which takes place each year in the United States occurred . 

Seattle Seahawks kicker, Steven Hauschka, hit two field goals of 31 and 33 yards in the same quarter to keep control in all facets of the game.

Hauschka had his moment of redemption after a very difficult past season, when several coaches told him he was not NFL material. 

In the second quarter, when it seemed that the role of Manning begin to show in the field , running back Marshawn Lynch moved a yard, but Smith intercepted the ball. Smith returned 69 yards to the diagonal zone and scored another TD for Seattle.

Both teams went into the halftime with a score of 22-0 in favor of the Seahawks. Seattle from this point never allowed the Broncos offense to perform at their best. 

The powerful Seattle defense and the weak Broncos offence were evident again at the third quarter when wide receiver, Percy Harvin returned 87 yards in delivering the ball to a " touchdown " and moved the lead to 29-0.

Seattle Quarterback  appeared in the third period with a powerful arm and passed a 23-yard pass to receiver Jermaine Kearse to score again . 

In response, Manning built six plays that allowed the Broncos get their first points. Manning found Demaryius Thomas, his favorite receiver with 14 yards carried to the diagonal zone. Manning then made another run downconversion with a last minute pass to his  receiver Wes Walker, to put numbers and avoid the shutout 36-8 and not be the team with the lowest score in a Super Bowl history. 

In the last period, Wilson sent his second pass " touchdown " to find 10-yard pass to receiver Doug Baldwin and sentenced the score 43-8 .

Seattle quarterback , Wilson, completed 18 of 25 passes yesterday. He added 206 yards, and had two passes on " touchdown " without interception and left an index of 123.1 , compared to 73.5 of Manning.

Wilson became the second African American quarterback to win the Super Bowl after Washington Red Skins legend Doug Williams, who won the Super Bowl XXII and MVP trophy with the famous Hogs and defeated Hall of fame Denver Broncos QB John Elway.

Manning did not appear

The veteran quarterback, which missed his second Super Bowl , this time different from the Indianapolis Colts, who made ​​first team , completed 34 of 49 passes , got gains 280 yards , had a pass " touchdown " and was intercepted twice. 

The loss of Manning , who never knew how to respond to the powerful defense of the Seahawks, raises again the rumors that have never been prepared for the big games and will again question his legacy.

Manning , 37 , who won the Most Valuable Player ( MVP ) and Best Offensive Player of the League , it dropped to an 11-12 playoff games and 1-2 in Super Bowl games . 

This time Seattle's defense forced four turnovers, while the Broncos 26 all season.
